my adventures on the other coast
mostly pictures. few words
arrived in snow. serious snow
potato pancakes - helped fuel me post red-eye flight.
while i waited for eling some kids made a snowman.
|eling thru the felix gonzales torres piece|
made it to AWP [why do all conference halls have weird carpet?]
went to lunch on newbury street. learned how to navigate dirty slushy puddles of goo [and also realized that waterproof boots with fur and rubber bottoms serve a real purpose - not just fashion - as they do in CA]
flew to NY. where it was 50 degress and beautiful
went to volta and met up with walter and looked at a lot of art [another post for this]. went to dinner at kelly and ping noodle shop.
taught my workshop at purl soho - lotta jansdotter was in my class [along with some other amazingly talented folks. only in NY]
ran up to the guggenheim to see the gutai show, which was good, but really liked the zarina hashmi show
cut thru central park
took the train upstate to visit another friend [who lives on 4 acres surrounded by trees]
came back to manhattan [in the rain] to meet with friends from the impossible project [view from their offices above].
made it back to the airport to head home. phew. i think i was in every kind of weather [snow, rain, wind, sun], every kind of transportation [plane, train, subway, automobile, walking] and covered a lot of miles... and saw/met a lot of people. it was good. more random shots:
cities are good. travel is good. but being home is also good.
